I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Justices Scalia, Breyer Not Quite Familiar With Twitter

From a Congressional committee hearing today about technology in the Court system:

Justice Scalia: “I don’t know even what it is . . . I’ve heard it talked about”

Justice Breyer: “remember when they had that disturbance in Iran . . . there were some Twitters as I call them . . . but there were people there with photos as it went on . . . it’s instant and people react instantly . . . it’s not something that’s going to go away”

Well, at least they didn’t call it a series of tubes.
